Toshiba Moves Beyond Basic Backup Solutions With Canvio Home Backup & Share

"Storage Device Allows Consumers Quick and Seamless Access to Their Digital Content"

IRVINE, Calif. - Feb. 4, 2014

Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today introduced the Canvio® Home Backup & Share, a simple and powerful network attached storage hub for the connected home that brings together islands of content and allows easy access to digital assets. Available in capacities up to 3TB, the Canvio Home enables the availability of content on a contextual basis, flowing from device to device, screen to screen and location to location.

"Imagine having access to all your important digital assets-around your home, around the world, or through your portable devices, and you'll know what it's like with the new Canvio Home, an easier, safer way to backup, share, stream, and store your files and multimedia," said Maciek Brzeski, vice president of product marketing and development, Branded Storage Products, Toshiba Digital Products Division. "It is so much more than just a box to drop your files in. This is safe, private storage that you can share."

The Canvio Home was designed specifically to address past complications of storing files with easy-to-install and easy-to-use software for all the most important functions. Once it's up and running, users will have no trouble logging in and finding the files and other content they want, thanks to a single application with a clear menu and intuitive interface. Unlike online backup solutions, the Canvio Home stores all of a user's digital assets in a familiar, centralized and completely secure place, not a remote unknown location. Whether users are away on business, across town, or even across the world, as long as there is an internet connection, content stored on the Canvio Home is always accessible.

Between desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, there are countless ways to consume content across today's digital playground. Users can count on the widely compatible Canvio Home to play right along with their digital lives. It works with most of the popular platforms on the market, including Windows® PC's, Mac® computers, iPhone® and iPad® mobile digital devices and Android™ based smartphones and tablets, as well as DLNA-compatible media streaming devices.

The Canvio Home allows users the ability to stream media wirelessly all around their connected home. They can watch their home movies on their tablet PC-upstairs and downstairs, or listen to their favorite album on any home stereo or PC connected to their network. Users can also have peace of mind knowing that the Canvio Home is backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

The Toshiba Canvio® Home Backup & Share is currently available for purchase at select retailers and on toshiba.com/us/ for $199.99 MSRP for the 2TB model and $259.99 MSRP for the 3TB model.
